And you can watch all the big games remaining in the next six weeks to find out who the true title contenders are. Throw in conference title games and a steady parade of bowl games, and the season stretches into early And you don't have to miss a moment if you know all about the many ways to watch college football games. Here's how to watch the NCAA college football season, including where to find live streams of the games and how to use a VPN if you're far from home when your favorite school is taking the field. Do you have a TV?
The best streaming experiences come when you have an app available in the system you are using. It's easy to use and delivers a very good viewing experience and a smooth, high definition picture.
The AppleTV remote is genius in it's simplicity and effectiveness. It's about the size of a large pack of gum, and has a mouse pointer surface for your thumb, and that same surface can be pressed to click and select. In addition, you can install a Remote app on your iPhone or iPad that does exactly the same thing, with the added ability to have a keyboard to type when doing searches.
In regular use, I have found that Apple TV works best when it is connected to a high quality, high end router via an ethernet cable.
It will work with a cheaper router and wifi, but not as well. Get the best one you can afford. I have heard good reports on the low end Fire Stick, but remember you are streaming live action at preferably high resolution.
The Cube includes an ethernet port that will provide higher performance than wifi; the Stick models offer an ethernet connector as an option, but with that option the price advantage of the stick decreases. However the true advantage of the Stick is it's portability. If you ever want to take your game access with you, it is very small and easy to pack.
It's remote is easy to use and in the case of fast forward and "rewind", it's actually a bit easier. ChromeCast Ultra Google offers a video streaming device called Chromecast.
The Ultra version has an ethernet connector on it so you can plug it directly into the router. It supports the new 4K video resolution; that's not an option for any NAIA game I know of, but the fact that the non-Ultra does NOT have these options suggests to me that if high definition is important to you as it is to me the Ultra is the one to consider.
It's not that much more money. I have both an original Chromecast that's a few years old and a new Ultra. The old one is adequate but occassionally gets behind and "skips" a few seconds of playback.
The Ultra played back perfectly.
If you decide to go with a Chromecast, just get the Ultra. It's a bit more clunky than Apple TV. The process works like this: Go to the Google "Home" app and select your device the Chromecast device Open the app you want to stream video with i.
However the "consistency" isn't as nice as Apple TV is at it's best. More apps are available as well, for your non-NAIA viewing options: basically any Android app can be cast. Roku I have the least experience with Roku; I've only had the experience of one testing session on a Roku system.
I have learned that Android devices can cast to Roku systems as well, although I haven't tried this. If you've already got it, you might not need anything else.
Let us know if Game Central streaming works with it. My first forays into big screen streaming were with these types of devices, and I wasn't happy with either of them.
Let's just say you get what you pay for. Potentially, these could be as good as Apple TV since streaming is based on actual installed apps, and just about any Android app can be installed. I would strongly recommend you test Game Central streaming before you buy, since it's browser dependent and I believe still requires Flash to be installed.
Flash is getting to be a problem on Android systems. My experience with mouse pointers on the set top boxes was poor as well. Neither were even close to Apple TV. I'd say, if you're willing to spend the money on a high end Android set top box then just go ahead and spend it on an Apple TV instead.
Go with an Android only if you can't get the Apple TV to stream consistently on your network.
